Rumours were recently rife of filmmaker Shoojit Sircar planning another project, despite his upcoming ‘October’ not having been released yet. The same rumours also indicated that Ranbir Kapoor could be playing the lead in the said film. Though the project has been confirmed to be a biopic of Udham Singh, Sircar denied reports that Kapoor will be starring in it.
Confirming the project, Deccan Chronicle reports Sired stating, “I am making the Udham Singh biopic, I’m already in the process of it, I’ve started shooting few clips also. The cast has been more or less locked, I’ll be letting it out soon.”
“But Ranbir isn’t there. We are friends, we played football together so we have meetings together. We talk about cinema and other things, but no. If something happens with Ranbir in the future, I’ll let you know,” he went on to reveal.
Starring Varun Dhawan, Sircar’s forthcoming ‘October’ is set to hit the big screens on 13th April.
